Tuition & Fees
Tuition and fees at Spruce Tree vary depending on the program options you choose. Our new All Year Montessori tuition schedule offers a balanced monthly payment schedule, payable September through August including an enrollment deposit for the next fall due in April and the materials fee for the next fall due in August. There is no application fee.
All students (preschool through 6th grade) attend school five days per week. We enjoy 7-hour school days, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, 196 days per year, 7 weeks on / 2 weeks off, September through August. There are no calendared “early out” days and we do not close school for parent-teacher conferences. We do offer a half day preschool/kindergarten program, 8:30 am – 12:45 pm, Monday – Friday, if space is available.
Spruce Tree provides all student school supplies (pencils, paper, notebooks, journals, art supplies, etc) for the year as well as healthy snacks and milk for its students. Our classrooms are stocked with the essential collection of Montessori-approved materials as defined by the American Montessori Society.
There are no additional fees for our physical education programming which includes swimming and ice skating lessons for elementary students and yoga, tae-kwan-do, and curling instruction for all students. Students and parents have free access to the school library collection and all students receive an enrollment gift on the first day of school.
